The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth honored several Tennesseans this week for their efforts on behalf of children.
Awards were presented at the agency’s annual Children’s Advocacy Days event, which serves as an opportunity for children’s advocates, service providers and others to come together to listen to speakers, leaders and peers who share the goal of improving outcomes for children, youth and families.
Of the five honorees that were recognized, one was from Porter-Leath! Sandra Allen, a founding board member and former president of the Association of Infant Mental Health in Tennessee, was awarded the Jim Pryor Child Advocacy award. Allen serves as the senior adviser to the Early Success Coalition.
